Joaquin Phoenix: PCP and Being Heckled Just Don't Mix.

Feeling the sting of irrelevance since he hasn't been in the news for a few weeks, Joaquin Phoenix starting bringing crazy back at a show at the Fontainebleu Miami Beach Hotel last night, when he jumped in the crowd and confronted a dude he thought was/paid for heckling him, according to the Daily Mail:

"Several of those in the audience said they came just to see Phoenix, who kept them waiting for almost four hours.
A scruffy Phoenix finally came out on stage before 2am, smoking a cigarette and wearing a dishevelled dark suit, sneakers and taped-up sunglasses.Then he responded to someone who appeared to be heckling him in the audience near the stage.
'We have a (double-expletive) in the audience,' he said before jumping into the crowd.
It was not immediately clear whether the two men exchanged any blows.
'I saw the guy screaming at Joaquin, and Joaquin just came down,' said Jorge Lledo, 30, of Miami Beach.
He began rapping to a beat played by the DJ and nodding to the music, although most of the lyrics were unintelligible."

Who in the world came just to see Joaquin Phoenix? WHY WOULD YOU WAIT FOUR HOURS?? If you did, shame on you for being disappointed. Your idol is acting more and more like Dewey Cox every day... and if you are surprised and/or disillusioned by Grungy McShavesnomore up there, that's your own fault.

UPDATE: We have video, folks. Well, I think you do... after about :40 the footage appears to turn into a montage of some guy's front pocket.

at this rate Joaquin is more likely to break into the comedy scene than the hip hop scene
